Hot Guilty Viewing Pleasure....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Best of Soul Cinema - Foxy Brown/Coffy/Black Mama, White Mama [DVD] (DVD)
What might appear on the box to be just gratuitous exploitation 70's flicks actually do have some plot and some acting abilities. They ALSO have pure visual excitement and indeed, pleasure, though these days, you probably wouldn't want to shout about it.
I'm sure Tarantino had some of the essence rubbed off on him from this genre (Pam Greer was the featured lead in his later Jackie Brown) and you could also say that they're Bond films, but made adult. I enjoy 'high-art' world cinema but occasionally, late at night, nothing seems more perfect to get down watching more base and frankly, dirty no-holds barred, grimy U.S features with big characters, big hair, big cars and guns and other big 'assets'.
Pam Greer is the ultimate 'Wonder Woman'; charismatic, beautiful and sassy. She also kicks serious ass! "Soul Cinema" is definitely not for everyone and would probably find most favour with older, single guys. The set is also brilliant value, too!
